12:00 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

ESP Graphics, Inc. today announced a new online Shockwave3D game for Windows and Macintosh, called The Barrier. According to the developer, The Barrier runs better on the Mac:

What's different about this game is, despite Shockwave 3D's PC leanings, this game was built on and for the Macintosh first. While many Shockwave3D games are PC only, this game actually performs better on a Mac.
The premise is a future world where mankind has been conquered by the evil alien "Virilons." The Virilons have turned cities into prisons by encasing each in a giant force-field dome or barrier. Players must escape the city by piloting a shuttle armed with missiles, energy blasts and cloaking devices, against enemy fighters, gun turrets and smart bombs.

Players may then add their scores to a Top Scores list, and may issue email challenges to friends, welcoming them to beat their best score.

System Requirements include: Macromedia Shockwave plugin ( and a 400 MHz G3 processor or faster.
